Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, this place especially excelled in our inspections category, where it earned a grade of A+. Not many nursing homes fared better in that area. Our inspection ratings are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. In determining our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided 4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an impressive figure which typically leads to higher quality care. Finally, this facility also excelled in several quality measures we assessed. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is typically an indicator that a place has reliable quality controls. Many pressure ulcers can be avoided by offering better nursing care and having a system of moving patients even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we gave it one of our stronger scores in that area, with a grade of B+. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.06 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a substantially better hospitalization rate than most nursing homes.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we rated is short-term care, was this facility's least impressive category. We gave this nursing home a D in this category. This was one of just a couple of dings in an otherwise strong profile. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. It appears that this facility was below average in many staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 37.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
